It seemed so easy. In my mind I knew what I wanted to paint. I had the actual picture right in front of me. I could visualize the vivid periwinkle color of the flower, the lush, variations of greens in the background, the taupes, greys, and sandstone of the rocks. But the shadows - the shadows fooled me. They eluded me. I became frustrated with my hand. My brain knew what I wanted to do but I couldn’t make my hand actually do it. I threw the brush down in frustration, giving up for the day, but appreciating the actual Maker of these things all the more.
